Accordingly, the people, who voluntarily chose to be quarantined at the hotels instead of normal quarantined areas, must cover the expense themselves.
The municipal People's Committee assigned the People’s Committees of Hoan Kiem district, Ha Dong district, Ba Dinh district and Soc Son district to coordinate with the city's Department of Health and Department of Tourism to manage the people who have chosen to be quarantined at the hotels as regulated. The additional hotels were added in a proposal on November 15.
The list of approved hotels includes: Hoa Binh Hotel, Muong Thanh Hanoi Grand, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, Silk Path Hanoi Hotel, Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, Hilton Hanoi Opera Hotel, Binh An 1 Hotel, Binh An 2 Hotel, Binh An 3 Hotel, Grand Vista Hotel, Lake Side Hotel, and Muong Thanh Grand Xa La Hotel.
As of November 11, the municipal People's Committee has assigned 23 local hotels, with a total of 2,640 rooms and 4,253 beds, as quarantine facilities for people who have been in contact with COVID-19 patients in the city.
The 23 hotels have so far hosted about 106,237 people since June 1, 2020.
Hanoi has recorded over 6,400 COVID-19 cases in the fourth coronavirus wave since late April. A total of 53 patients have died in the capital city during this time.
The city has administered around ten million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to local residents. About 92.3% of the people aged 18 and above have been given at least one shot, accounting for 69.4% of its total population. Meanwhile, 55.4% of the people in the age group, or 41.6%, have been fully vaccinated.
